Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

To aficionados and wordsmiths, palindromes--phrases that read the same backward and forward, such as "bird rib" or "senile felines"--are more than just wordplay; they have a special kind of sense and serve as reminders that all language is only a human construct. There are now many palindrome collections on the market, none more comprehensive than this volume of 3,500 palindromes by the founding editor of Games magazine. "Never odd or even," this is a book to amuse and instruct in the riches of the language.

From Library Journal

A palindrome is a phrase that reads the same backward as forward, e.g., "Nemo, we revere women." Donner, a founding editor of Games magazine, presents a collection here for readers who revel in word games. Donner includes amusing and informative commentaries for many of the entries and frequently acknowledges his sources, enabling the curious to go further. Too many palindromes strain at sense?"Separate tar apes!"?but others delight?"Dog doo! Good God!" OCLC lists dozens of palindrome collections, but the 3500 entries in this volume seem to make it more comprehensive than most. Libraries lacking a good-sized and up-to-date palindrome collection will be well served by this one.?Peter A. Dollard, Alma Coll. Lib., Mt. Pleasant, Mich.
